Be brave and get messy.



It was a big  mess here on this spread..and you can see it still that there is going on very much...lol. Black gesso to start with and some cut out houses from little portrait studies. Some oilpastels...a layer with white gesso over all applied with an old credit card...just a mess.. really...

but as the idea for a face came to mind and I was brave enough to try and draw,  the fun began and in the end it's good enough for me and it must be good enough for

ART JOURNAL JOURNEY - Architecture and for 49 faces (No33) as well. 
I will also link to SHOW YOUR FACE FRIDAY.


Was für ein Schlamassel auf diesen Seiten..und du kannst noch sehen was hier alles so los war.Schwarzes Gesso, ausgeschnittene Häuschen von einer Seite mit kleinen Übungsportraits, Ölpastellkreiden, dann wieder ein Schicht weisses Gesso über alles mit Plastikkarte aufgebracht.Richtig lustig wurde es dann noch als die Idee kam ein Gesicht darüber zu zeichnen - und ich mich das traute. Ich bin mit dem Ergebnis ganz zufrieden und es ist für alle oben im Text angegebenen Challenges gedacht.

    ist eine sehr gelungene Collage und das Gesicht

  11. I think the face looks great with your house shapes. Not a mess, but I know how you feel when you start something and you don't like and then you try to fix it or play with it...sometimes it looks a mess to us, but to others, it never seems to looks so bad. Hope its a good day!

  15. You really DID get messy, but my messes usually end up spilling over onto pages that I don't want them on. This is gorgeous and has SO many techniques with it, too.
